Interessi di Ricerca

Seagrasses are inhabited by a variety of associated organisms, including symbiotic mi-crobes as well as invertebrates (e.g., sponges). Together with their host, they form the so-called ‘holobiont’. The partners within the holobiont are strongly interacting with each other, thus affecting fundamental processes, such as carbon or nitrogen cycling. Our understanding of the role of invertebrate-microbe-host associations in driving carbon or nitrogen cycling in coastal ecosystems is limited, and so is our ability to predict the consequences of human impacts on the functioning of these ecosystems. Therefore, I aim to investigate whether invertebrate-microbe-host associations act as drivers of biogeochemical cycling and whether and how environmental changes will affect fluxes of carbon and nitrogen at the organism and the ecosystem scale.
